A couple of weeks ago I decided I needed some really heavy bass synth sounds for a song I’m working on. I loves me some free VST Plugins, but thought I might broaden my horizons and check out free demos to see the range of what is out there. I came across Native Instruments’ Massive, immediately downloaded it , fired up Cubase and was ready to give it a whirl when my son called me into his room. He wanted to show me something he had created. I tried putting him off for a few minutes while I messed with a couple of the presets, but it became apparent he really wanted my attention so off I went.
After checking out my son’s latest Lego creation, I headed back towards the kitchen only to spy a basket of laundry I had collected a little earlier that day. I decided to be proactive and take the laundry down to the washing machine. Once I had the wash started I realized there was more laundry in the dryer. I’ve been working very hard to stay on top of things and not let it all pile up, so I took that laundry upstairs, folded it and put it away. In the process I came across a shirt that needed a button sewn back on. Well, there happened to be a few things in my “needs mending” pile, so I took all of that out to the living room, sat down and made necessary repairs. Now I felt really good about myself. I was getting things done!
I started towards the bedroom by way of the kitchen when I saw my laptop sitting there with an odd message on the screen. I immediately checked it out in fear that is was my virus protection software alerting me to some download doom. Nope. It was simply a message from Native Instruments telling me my thirty minute trial of Massive was up and thanking me for giving it a try. D’oh!
